    Default Buying a bag/clutch/purse for girfriend.

    Hi!
    The reason I registered to this forum is because anniversary is coming up ( 2 years ) and I want to get her something special. Because I have absolutely no experience in buying bags I need some help. She's 22, and I would prefer to buy something "neutral" and not going for anything too flashy ( for the risk that she might not like it ). If I could be given recommendations for some bag models ( Prada/Louis Vuitton/Burberry ) etc, it would be much appreciated! Also I'd like to keep the budget under 1000$


    Thanks in advance!

    my advice is bring your gf to the store and let her choose.

    My bf bought me a coach bag that I really really do not like. It was such a waste of money.

    That would be the easiest, that way she would be getting exactly what she wanted.

    what kind of bags does she already have? Is she more of a shoulder bag or handheld person? Are most of her bags open top, zip top, etc? If you can see what she already has and likes, that could help you narrow it down so you can choose something that she'd like!

    my opinion you cant go wrong with a Louis Vuitton bag

    if she like satchel person i recommend the louis vuitton monogram speedy 30 or the damuer sppedy 30

    if she like the tote bag, you can do a Louis vuitton Bagtinolles or louis vuitton Neverfull MM

    Exactly for 1000, louis vuitton tivoili

    try going to Designer Handbags, Clothes, Designer Shoes and Louis Vuitton at eLUXURY there no sales tax there and the online authorize reseller of louis vuitton

    I agree with the comments of taking your GF to the store as a good idea. LV is a great brand and you probably could find something very nice under $1000 (Epi line is great). I also like the classic collection of Prada e.g. their solid black bags whether leather or nylon but I think the leathers will end up being slightly north of $1000? depending on the choice. Saks, Bloomies, Neiman Marcus are great stores to explore in person. Not sure if you have Designer Outlets around your area but sometimes they have nice stuff too. She may also like Marc Jacobs? Some of his bags are a solid colored leather and there are some cuties for under $1000 (non-quilted maybe best).

    I think it's sweet to get a gift though...I'd get her classic monogram...I'd also go with the Speedy 25 or 30 too...She can wear it with pretty much everything...and if she doesn't like it, then take her back and let her pick one out...But i doubt that will happen...Good luck and let us know what you do decide...
